Acer palmatum 'Aureum'

Acer palmatum 'Aureum' (Japanese Maple)

Common Name

Japanese Maple


Any non alkaline soil. Correct light more important





Action and Timing

Upright and bushy to 20ft, bright yellow and gold being the striking autumnal colours following a spring and summer display of yellow-lime green, it is best in a shady corner for full effect.

Nursery Notes

Grafted plant.


A superb specimen plant that loves shade and rewards accordingly, also good in a container which will restrict its size to what you wish. Not to be confused with 'shirasawaeneum aureum' or 'japonicum aureum'.

This plant was added to the database on 26th December, 2009.
